Paychex Recognized By Plansponsor Magazine As A Leader In 401(k)

Paychex, Inc., one of the nation’s leading providers of 401(k) recordkeeping services for America’s businesses, ranks as the largest 401(k) recordkeeper by number of plans for the second year in a row, according to a recent national survey from Plansponsor magazine.

The fourteenth annual recordkeeping survey conducted by Plansponsor, a national publication dedicated to the pension and retirement industry, ranked Paychex as the leading provider in the category of total recordkeeping plans, serving 58,000 plans. Having been recognized previously in 2011, this marks the second time Paychex earned this honor.

Paychex also came in first by number of new plans won in 2011 with 12,200, the ninth time Paychex received this honor. Paychex also ranked seventh for net percentage increase in plans from 2010 to 2011. For the complete results of the Plansponsor survey please visit

“Paychex is committed to helping America’s small business owners provide the right retirement plan for their businesses,” said Lonny Ostrander, vice president of Human Resources Services Sales for Paychex. “Receiving this national recognition not only reaffirms our capabilities, but demonstrates our experience and knowledge in the industry.”

“The defined contribution market is as strong as ever. 2011 represents the most plans, assets, and participants in the 14 year history of the survey. This continued growth has fostered intense competition among the field of providers, resulting in constant investment and improvement in new products and services to benefit retirement plan sponsors and participants,” said Quinn Keeler, senior vice president of research at Asset International, which publishes Plansponsor magazine.
